About City Merchant Turkiye
Warm Turkish Hospitality
A good night out with good food in warm and pleasant surroundings.
Definitely recommend this place!
We booked a 5pm meal early on the evening of Hogmanay when staff were obviously preparing for a very busy night. On arrival we were shown to our table then were quickly asked if we would move to accommodate a larger booking. We were happy to help and from then on our evening was fabulous. Food was brilliant, especially the Jimmy’s and breads! Staff were very attentive and despite the busy evening ahead could not do enough for us. The restaurant was quiet when we arrived but we found a nice table and enjoyed the food and wine offered as part of our deal (£43 for 2 courses each plus a bottle of wine). We were asked to choose any bottle of wine from the menu which was a nice touch. We will definitely go back and would commend the excellent staff and great food. Looking forward to our next visit. Thank you!
Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine in the Merchant City
Formerly a Glasgow institution serving up Scottish dishes, the City Merchant has transformed itself into City Merchant Turkiye. Turning its focus from Scotland to sunnier climes, it now specialises in offering the taste of Turkey and the Mediterranean to city centre diners.
Seafood, shish and sarma
At City Merchant Turkiye, you can enjoy Levantine favourites in a cosy and casual setting.
Starters include fried calamari rings in batter; chicken wings cooked on a charcoal grill, and pan-fried king prawns with halep sauce. Veggies can sample vine leaves stuffed with mixed rice and vegetables.
Main courses feature charcoal grilled salmon fillet; grilled lamb shish with fries, and vegetarian moussaka.
If you have room for dessert, then expect Turkish classics such as baklava and sultac rice pudding jostling for your attention alongside treats like chocolate fudge cake.
Merchant City attractions
